Flower of the Day – Desert Willow (Chilopsis)

Flower of the Day – Desert Willow (Chilopsis)

***

Bright pink flowers on slender green leaves.

These were outside the hospital where I had an appointment yesterday. A guy passing by said these were Desert Willows. We do see these all over town.

From a Wiki article:

…it has willow-like leaves, but it is not a true willow – being instead a member of the catalpa family.

It is a shrub or tree native to the southwestern United States and Mexico. It is commonly seen in washes and along riverbanks.
